#38538d HTML / CSS Code Examples

#38538d foreground

The emotions are sometimes so strong that I work without knowing it. The strokes come like speech.

Vincent Van Gogh
<p style="color: #38538d">…</p>

#38538d background

The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web.

Pablo Picasso
<p style="background-color: #38538d">…</p>

#38538d shadow

It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.

Pablo Picasso
